It outlines the ranges of carbs / fats / protein that Spark promotes as being healthy. The "ideal" shown on the Daily Feedback chart as 50/30/20 is just around the centre of each range, but there is still a lot of room for adjustments around them.
I wouldn't get your knickers in a twist about hitting exactly the 50/30/20 - that's just an easy guideline to give you an idea of about where to be.
Hope this helps!

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
